When I was a boy, about ten or so, I used to like to make Airfix model kits.
The little models were mainly heroes from English history but curiously there was a figure of Napoleon included in the range and it was always one of my favourites, probably because he was one of the easiest to put together and to paint. It is an odd thing but I think that Airfix kit of Napoleon Bonaparte began my interest in French history and why I went on to study the French Revolution and the Napoleonic Empire at University.
Other figures in the range were the Kings Richard the Lionheart, Henry V, Henry VIII and Charles I and to balance things up there was the regicide Oliver Cromwell.
Napoleon was there but not Hitler or Stalin and alongside him representing France was Joan of Arc.
For some reason Julius Caesar who once invaded England was included but not William The Conqueror.
Who was your favourite Airfix figure?
